About The Frugal Homeschooling Mom
Hey, there! My name is Deana, and I’m “The Frugal Homeschooling Mom.” Welcome to my blog about:
- frugal and free homeschooling printables and resources
- how to homeschool on a tight budget
- budgeting tips and tricks
- homeschool family freebies
- affordable homeschool resources
After I left my job in 2008 as a Master’s level public school teacher, I chose to stay at home and homeschool. I started this blog in February of 2009. Now, it is such a fun adventure and a blessing to see this blog reach over 2 million homeschool moms (and dads, grandparents, and caretakers) every year!
I enjoy bringing you information that may support you as you begin homeschooling your own children or that may help you live an abundant life on a not-so-abundant budget. You’ll find resources for living a frugal and somewhat minimalist lifestyle here.
About The Frugal Homeschooling Mom
I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my family. For me, being a mommy is the greatest joy on earth. I am a single working mom. Homeschooling and working from home is what I feel God has led me to do throughout the majority of my motherhood so far.
God gives us strength, He always provides, and He is always at work in our lives. This blog is the result of all I’ve learned and experienced through 15+ years of homeschooling and living on a tight budget, and I’ve poured my heart into the content here. I hope to help others who may be in similar circumstances.

You can reach me best by email, or via private message on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you!
“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
